A PLAN for a multi-million pound redevelopment of Prestatyn Nova has been submitted.

Denbighshire Council has submitted the application which includes the retention of the 25 metres, four lane swimming pool and small splash pool, the creation of a village changing area to serve the swimming pool, an improved fitness offer with separate fitness changing and the creation of a multi-use space to accommodate current community events and a range of exercise classes and sports clubs.

A large soft play facility with new entrance, reception and café area overlooking the sea is also included along with the creation of two or three promenade side retail units.

A spokesman for Denbighshire Council said: “We are still in the detailed design stage working closely with our development partner and their Architects and Surveyors.

“We should have more detailed designs and costs by mid September.”

The Nova could undergo a name change, while the Starlight Suite will remain and be ‘modernised’.

Denbighshire Council’s cabinet voted earlier this year to push ahead with a £108,000 investment to bring the £3.66 million project to the detailed design stage.

The leisure facility remains closed after the council took back control of the Nova, along with Rhyl Sun Centre and the North Wales Bowls Centre, after operator Clwyd Leisure went into administration earlier this year.

The North Wales Bowls Centre, which is undergoing a redevelopment is set to re-open in September.

Jamie Groves, Denbighshire Council’s head of communication, marketing and leisure, said: “This project is seen as one of the main priorities for the town.

“There is a demand for this type of facility. Clearly there is going to be a spin off for businesses and to the economy. If we create the right destination we want visitors and tourists to come back and use the facilities. The beach here is full on a nice day.

“The best-case scenario is that we could have it open by July next year.”
Alliance Leisure Services (ALS) has been appointed as the development partner for the redevelopment having worked with the council on the £1.3 million development of Ruthin Leisure Centre.
